Is there a solution available?
wouldn't it be more sensible to do this the right way: releasing the source code (say on github) so users (or you devs) could build packages that are distribution specific.
Come on, it is not THAT complicated a program. And besides, if you put it under the right license, the competing company will also have to release the source including their modifications/bug fixes, leading to an even better piece of software. It is about trust and transparency, especially for a company that lives by people (like we) trusting them.Actually, I do not trust a closed source program, that is distributed over a file-hoster. I would not install this program permanently on my machine. I am using a self-written script (which is not as comfortable).
